This year we are looking at a very exotic edition of our Congress in Norway, a unique market for potatoes, that will provide a lot of insights for colleagues around Europe and beyond.
We are very excited to bring the Europatat Congress 2019 to Norway for the first time ever. With a panoramic view over the city of Oslo, we expect many interesting and inspiring discussions with the best qualified people from the potato sector in Europe.
The Europatat Congress has become a key date for the potato sector in Europe, and this year edition in Norway shows the growing importance of cooperating in a globalised market
The congress focused on the assets of the potato sector in the, both politically and technical key areas of health, sustainability and responsibility of the business. Health and nutrition, the low environmental impact and investment on innovation, as well as the seriousness of our companies in regards to social corporate responsibility were all part of the 2018 programme.
